Client feedback


They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. HR Trustees is geared to delivering that.

When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
​Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.

The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
